Part 1:

Engagement phase: Here I talk about approaching your opponent and some of the things you’re going to face like beating butterfly and de la riva hooks to enter into your knee slide pass.


Part 2:

Details of the knee slide pass: In the second part I go deep into the details of entering and finishing your knee slide pass and some different options of finishing the pass.


Part 3:

First option for beating the knee shield: In this video I talk about your opponent being able to insert their knee shield and I give you an option for beating it and completing your knee slide.


Part 4: 

Second option for beating the knee shield: In the fourth part I talk about countering your opponent's knee shield with a leg weave pass and working yourself into a position to take the back off of the pass.


Part 5:

Combining the X pass: In the final part I talk about the situation where maybe your opponent is a good guard player and it’s going to be very hard to finish your knee slide to back out and combo it with a X pass. This is one of the pass combos i've used many times in competition and have found great success with it.
